The storm is forecast to become a remnant low by Saturday.


Hurricane Larry is expected to pass Bermuda on Thursday. The storm is still sending waves to Florida and causing high rip currents risk at the coast.

The storm is forecast to move near or over southeastern Newfoundland Friday night or early Saturday.

Larry is expected to weaken over the next few days, but it is expected to remain a hurricane.

Forecasters said Larry should become an extratropical cyclone early Saturday, after passing by Newfoundland, then weaken further while it passes southeast of Greenland Sunday night.

Larry is expected to be absorbed by a larger baroclinic system east of Greenland on Monday.
